adLDAP is a PHP class that provides LDAP authentication and integration with Active Directory.

We’d appreciate any improvements or additions to be submitted back to benefit the entire community :)


adLDAP requires PHP 5 and both the LDAP (http://php.net/ldap) and SSL (http://php.net/openssl) libraries


adLDAP is not an application, but a class library designed to integrate into your own applications.

The core of adLDAP is contained in the ‘src’ directory. Simply copy/rename this directory inside your own projects.

Edit the file src/adLDAP.php and change the configuration variables near the top, specifically those for domain controllers, base dn and account suffix, and if you want to perform anything more complex than use authentication you’ll also need to set the admin username and password variables too.

From within your code simply require the adLDAP.php file and call it like so

require_once(dirname(__FILE__) . '/adLDAP.php');
$adldap = new adLDAP();

It would be better to wrap it in a try/catch though

try {
    $adldap = new adLDAP();
catch (adLDAPException $e) {
    echo $e;

Then simply call commands against it e.g.

$adldap->authenticate($username, $password);
